‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’, 20 x 20cm, oil on box canvas

Through my friends on facebook I came across an exhibition running in Brighton as part of the Gay Pride festival next week. The idea was to have 100 artists exhibit a small artwork for the week to raise funds for the festival next year. I love festivals so thought why not?
This is my portrait of Champagne Charly performing her ‘Dorothy’ routine. I added the rainbow as it is the colours of gay pride and I made her feather boa a touch more vivacious. I did resist painting the red shoes for once though!
